Bristol Rovers vs. Aston Villa: Lineups and Open Match Thread


Bristol Rovers vs. Aston Villa

Saturday, January 7th

Location: Memorial Stadium, Bristol



Goodness me -- Alex McLeish said he'd take the FA Cup seriously, but really....a full strength starting XI to face League Two side Bristol Rovers? (and yes, I'm convinced Non-Sir truly believes that Emile Heskey is on the same level as Gabriel Agbonlahor). McLeish already acknowledged that the players are exhausted -- not sure this is going to help any.

Ah well, UTV!
